Minnesota Golden Gophers forward Nick Bjugstad scored this awesome goal against Boston College on Sunday Night. He’s got a great set of hands, and did a great job using his body to shield the puck. Bjugstad was drafted 19th overall by the Florida Panthers, and based on his development, he looks like he could have a bright future in the NHL. This year he has 15 points through 18 games and that total will only continue to climb.Video via: @cjzero

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have been here before.
They've steamrolled through cushy nonconference schedules to crack the AP Top 25 and raise some optimism for the season. Then the Big Ten comes along and roughs them up.
This year, they say they're different. Well, they're about to find out.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Spartans were charging, and the Golden Gophers were coming unglued, rushing shots, turning the ball over and losing their focus in transition.
